There are indications that PM Lee Hsien Loong will call for elections in 2015. As such, the SDP will get underway our preparations for the electoral campaign.
The GE, widely anticipated to be held at the end of next year, is crucial as it will determine the future direction of our country. Depending on circumstances, Mr Lee may call for one as early as the second quarter of 2015.
It is, therefore, not early at all for the SDP to step up our campaign and prepare ourselves for the much anticipated contest.
This is why we are officially holding our GE2015 Campaign Kick-Off on 10 January 2015, Saturday at 2 pm at the Holiday Inn Atrium, Outram Road (see map).
The launch will present our strategy and campaign activities. We will unveil our vision and direction for Singapore. It will also be an occasion for Singaporeans to share your views with us and get involved in the campaign.
2015 also marks the 35th anniversary of the SDP. As such, a series of activities will be held to commemorate the occasion which will complement the election campaign activities.
Singapore is at a crossroads and the general election is a crucial opportunity for voters to decide the future of our country. Our launch in January kicks-off the process and we invite all Singaporeans to join us on this important occasion.
If we wait until elections are announced before we start increasing the tempo, it will be too late and we will have lost the battle.
Over the last few years, the SDP has been hard at work conducting our ground campaign and drawing up our alternative policies. We are now at the stage where we need to effectively communicate our policies and what we want to do for the country to our voters.
To do this we need much help from you, our friends and supporters. Please make a note of the date of the launch and be part of what promises to be a groundbreaking and historic elections.
